city of Minori
Minori is a town and a comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of southwestern Italy, situated on the Amalfi Coast.
It is the site of the well-preserved ruins of a Roman villa, which are open for public viewing. The origin of the name, Minori (meaning small), comes from its association in the past with the river that courses through it, La Rheggina. The ancient Latin name for the town was, Rheggina Minor. This name coincided with the ancient name of the neighboring village, Maiori (meaning large), then known as Rheggina Maior, because of the same association. In time, the names of both of the towns have become abbreviated. Rheggina Minor now is known simply as, Minori. Chef Gennaro Contaldo was born in Minori .
